From impressive street appeal, triple car garage and contemporary finishes, everything about this home exudes quality.  On arrival you will get a sense of occasion reserved for only the finest of properties.

The formal entrance opens to brush box hardwood flooring inviting you down to a  sunken lounge room with open fireplace. From the towering three metre cofferred ceilings to the solid timber stairs everything is oppulent and grand in proportions.

The home has four great sized living areas. A huge family room off the centrally located kitchen, a rumpus room, sunken lounge and separate dining. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances and granite benchtops making dinner parties a breeze.  

A study / 5th bedroom is also cleverly located on the ground level near the formal entrance. The first of two quality bathrooms has floor to ceiling tiles and semi frameless shower screens. The laundry is oversized and well located near the internal access to your triple car garage. The inslab heating, plus ducted r/c and gas heater will ensure year round comfort. Everything about this home just seems to work and flow beautifully.

The solid timber staircase leads you up to a huge mezzanine area that could easily accommodate a library / study area. All bedrooms are oversized, three with double entry doors and built in robes. The master has its own en-suite and walk through robe. The second bathroom has floor to ceiling tiling, spa bath and frameless shower screen. All bedrooms have a view either across to eastern hills, or over your low maintenance backyard. This home is in a prize location high atop Fadden Hills. The home is also one of the later homes built, meaning its looks and fittings are a generation later than many Fadden homes.
